Westwood Cross Shopping Centre welcomed two ‘royal’ guests this week to launch their newly refurbished disabled facilities.
‘Meghan’ and ‘Harry’ cut the ribbon to the new amenities, which have been funded by Kent County Council to support visitors to the centre with adult social care needs. The space has been decorated in a bright colour scheme and includes features such as a height adjustable bench, accessible handles and state-of-the-art alarm system.
Centre manager Francesca Donovan said: “We strive to ensure Westwood Cross is accessible to all guests and are delighted to open our brand new facilities to our customers. With the Royal wedding just around the corner, we were delighted to welcome ‘Harry’ and ‘Meghan’ to officially open the facilities!”
East Kent Mencap fundraising manager Jane Brooke said: “East Kent Mencap campaigns for greater opportunities for people with learning disabilities and Westwood Cross have been a great supporter of our work. This demonstrates their commitment to ensuring everyone is welcome at their centre. We’re delighted that these new facilities means there is a now a throne that people with a disability can use with dignity.”
Westwood Cross is getting into the regal spirit all week, giving the Pop up Park a royal makeover, with a host of family friendly entertainment planned.
